Bodylift + 32, or 33's.. Choose! :-)

Well, I am fully planning on a bodylift, AND getting new tires at the same time..

My current wheels are some 15x8 with 3 3/4 backspacing Ultra Baja Black/Chrome Wheels..

My current pick is up to you all..! What would you like to see the most?

Only issue I would have with a 33, is I don't think I would be able to tuck NEAR as much as I would be able to currently.. those with more experience may have something to say about it perhaps. That, plus wheel size.. I know a 15x8 isn't the preferable choice for a 12.5, but it also holds a bead pretty well, and doesn't balloon out quite as far as some options previous people have made (can we say 10's on 14's?)

a 33 will tuck fine with minimal rubbing if any at all. heck there used to be a member here tucking 33s on 15x8s with no lift at all!

run a 33 and a 15x8

you worried about a 8" wide rim with a 12.5" wide tire. I will be running a 8.5" wide rim with a 14.5" wide tire.

firefighterjosh has 15x7 and 33x12.5x15 tire and they wear good.

Yea...so a pic of mine somehow arises! lol. That's 3" BL, cranked bars, stock rear. It's actually LEVEL!

I personally can't stand the look of A/Ts. 3" BL and 32" ATs would, i think, make the tire look too tiny. The MT sorta hides that.

I was about to post the same thing. He's going with ATs as well so I think it would look better with a 33. Your MTs are bigger than a 32 AT thats why they look better.
